Lensbaby Announces Twist 60
Lensbaby has announced the upcoming release of the Twist 60, a metal-bodied non-tilting lens that captures a sharp subject with a swirly blurred background and enhanced vignette.
“Twist 60 embodies our love of old lenses and their unique ways of helping photographers discover creative possibilities,” said Craig Strong, Lensbaby co-founder and chief creative officer. “True to an 1840 design by Joseph Petzval, this lens reveals striking separation between subjects and their background, a quality that modern lens designs lack.”
Twist 60 Lens specs:
- 12-blade f/2.5-22 aperture
- 60mm focal length
- Twisty, swirly blur
- Compatible with full-frame cameras
- Available in Canon EF, Nikon F, and Sony E mounts
- Four elements in three groups
- Filter threads: 46mm
- Black anodized body with gold anodized aperture ring
- Minimum focus distance: 18 inches
Twist 60 lens retails for $279.95 and is available via pre-order beginning April 12. Twist 60 Optic will also be sold separately for use with other Lensbaby Optic Swap System-compatible lenses. It retails for $179.95. Lensbaby products are available at lensbaby.com, B&H, Adorama, and from select specialty photo stores worldwide.
